Im now taking Zoloft 100mg cymbalta 30mg for 2wks then i will stop Zoloft and just take cymbalta... Will this cause weight loss or gain?
Generally: Some medications dont exactly cause weight gain but if you feel depressed sometimes you dont eat so when you take an antidepressant and start feeling better your appetite comes back and you end up gaining weight. This doesnt always happen but some people treat the weight gain as causal to the medication when in fact its due to improved mood which leads to improved appetite.

It's likely to be trial and error to find the right key. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Does Cymbalta help with hot flashes or does it cause them? I'm seeing mixed reviews. I have severe hot flashes now. I don't want them to get worse!

If you have one of those problems it is worth trying and can be stopped if the hot flashes worsen. The most important thing is why you are having the hot flashes. That can determine what helps. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
